Beautiful Matrix with this BBD. Average Show.
As the standard of the small group of crazies who do this, I have come to appreciate more and more the consistency of Hunter’s work. This is a beautiful matrix, as I am now kind of anticipating for each of his projects. And having Betty as the board source - hey, what more can you ask? It’s also a big plus having an excellent Kathy Sublette AUD with all the crowd captured (Kathy Sublette?). The addition of a complete crowd recording is something I am always hoping for in audience captures. Thanks darlin’. Nothin' like a woman's touch... or in this case - not touch.
This show is average good, which means I’m not damning it with faint praise. It's definitely collectible. Another reviewer called this “mailed in.” I heartily disagree. And I don't think the band would have appreciated the uncaring comment. These guys were professionals in the best sense of the word. But, some days they were worn out. And some days the magic just wasn't there. The Road is a grueling taskmaster. I don’t think they ever mailed in anything. When you love what you do and respect the craft - and yourself and the audience - it’s not a phrase that fits (Yeah, there might be a little rose color in there). In saying that, there is nothing exceptional or "X" Factor for this evening. It’s a solid “good” show. Because the average was good. You don't become the greatest touring band in music history because you weren't good as an average (or very good or great as you prefer). The matrix and the sound quality bump this evening up to four stars.
I’ve always loved Half-Step openings. And this is a good one. But I am totally spoiled with Franklin’s Tower being married to it a month later. Having Half-Step drop off to nothing is tough to hear. God knows they did a rousing version. It's a slight letdown knowing what I know of the togetherness, making a lot of us Heads very very happy in 2020. Ah, it is what it is. And Jerry’s voice is getting a little better from his laryngitis, though it still hasn’t recovered completely. Donna sounds great tonight. She does a wonderful job of blending in. Lazy > Supp is a well done 1st set closer.
One interesting tidbit and a little ghost of Eugene in the second set is a one minute Close Encounters space teaser before Sugar Mag. Didn’t know it existed? It’s a fun and unexpected artifact (Didn't know Jerry was an extra in the movie either.).
BTW, who is Kathy Sublette? And Wow! Where did all these FOB masters come from!? Never heard of her until my search for this upload. The Archive has a whole bunch of new uploads of the Boyz from her by Ted Mattes? Just heard her 5/25/77 FOB. WOW!!! I think Ted's going to keep Hunter busy for quite a while. Can't wait for that one! Hey Ted, can you clue us in as to who this - long lost - mystery lady recordist is? Who knows, with these late '70s shows, she may overtake Joani Walker as the leading female recorder?
